So I have a silly question...Bob's Red Mill's Rolled Oats say "wheat free" but not "gluten free"??? Does that mean they are safe?? It does say they are produced in a wheat free facility...I'm new at all this.

Welcome to the forum, Ali! Bob's Red Mill also has rolled oats with a Gluten-Free label on them so be sure to look for that kind.

Not knowing how long you've been gluten-free, it is suggested that you not eat oats when you are newly diagnosed as a small percentage of celiacs do have an intolerance to oat products even if they are marked gluten-free. I waited until I was gluten-free for 9 months until I introduced them into my diet. Some suggest waiting longer than that.

Hope this helps!

I'm curious Ali. Are you in Canada? I have a package of Bob's Red Mill rolled oats and it says "Wheat free" as well. I heard somewhere that in Canada, oats cannot be labelled as gluten-free. Anyway, I intend to try them.
